G.SKILL Trident Z DDR4 Memory with Samsung ICs Achieve World’s First 5GHz Frequency Record

A Historic Milestone of PC Hardware Industry

Taipei, Taiwan (26 May 2016) – G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world’s leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, announces the world’s first DDR4 memory overclocking record to break past the mind-blowing 5GHz barrier, achieved with G.SKILL Trident Z Series DDR4 memory engineered with Samsung ICs and the MSI Z170I GAMING PRO AC motherboard. With this achievement in the official record books, the world’s top 7 memory frequency records are now dominated by G.SKILL memory.

The Holy Grail of DDR4 Frequency Record: DDR4-5002.4MHz

Surpassing the 5GHz frequency speed barrier had been the ultimate aspiration of the memory overclocking community since the last year’s launch of the Intel Skylake platform. This historic milestone is finally succeeded today by the renowned Taiwanese overclocking legend, Toppc, under liquid nitrogen cooling. “We are extremely excited to achieve this great milestone together with Samsung components and MSI motherboard,” says Tequila Huang, Corporate Vice President and Director of R&D, G.SKILL International.  “We will continually push hardware performance to the limits and provide enthusiasts with even more advanced products.”

Validated by both HWBOT and CPU-Z, this record currently ranks as the world’s #1 fastest memory speed record on HWBOT. For more information, please refer to the following images and links:
